Marvel's Ant-Man gets an official release date! Plus, 3D updates!

10.15.2012by:

Marvel's much-discussed-but-never-nailed-down ANT-MAN film, slated to be directed by Edgar Wright (HOT FUZZ, SHAUN OF THE DEAD) has finally gotten an official release date; November 6th, 2015. 

Theoretically, this would make ANT-MAN the first film of Marvel's Phase 3, as the sequel to THE AVENGERS is set to hit on May 1, 2015, which is the culmination of phase two.  No official word on that, but if you're doing the math...

No further details were revealed, but I'm sure details will start to slowly roll in now that the film has been given a spot on the roster.  I'm more excited that Wright is directing more than anything, so the casting won't make a huge difference to me, although I'm sure I can count on a bevy of votes for Nathan Fillion to fill the strikeback...

In addition, Disney has confirmed that both THOR: THE DARK WORLD and IRON MAN 3 will both be released in 3D (as well as 2D, of course).

So, there you have it.  Marvel's ANT-MAN will be released on November 6, 2015.  Update those calendars!

Neil Patrick Harris

He's got the look, the build, the acting-chops. And NPH working off a Edger Wright script? Freakin' Hilarious.

For some reason I think Ryan Gosling would make a great Ant Man

i hope im wrong but i predict this will be one of the worst received marvel movies. this is going to be a hard sell to people who arent real big into comics. not every character translates well to film.

Down with 3D, annoying hype which adds nothing in 90% of 3D movies (except more $ to the price of a ticket)

Marvel's track record has been excellent so far, so I don't want to make a big deal out of this. But the fact that Ant-man, GotG, and a shield tv show are all in the works over a Hulk movie makes me question their judgment. I think most fans would prefer another Hulk in place of 1, if not all, of those other options mentioned above. But as I said, Marvel has done well so far so they have the benefit of the doubt.

There is no need for another solo Hulk film IMO, he is better used as a character with The Avengers

Nathan Fillion?

I don't get why people throw him up for every part. He's like the geek's Johnny Depp. He's good but he doesn't belong in everything.
I don't know how old the character is supposed to be but my vote would go towards Alan Tudyk or Ryan Gosling or Moses from Attack the Block.

Maybe it's just me?

I know this is certain thumbs down material, but hopefully my previous posts prove that I'm not a troll or anything. I never read many comic books, so maybe I just don't get it (although I've loved every movie and character in the MCU thus far). But this and Guardians of the Galaxy are the 2 films i honestly didn't want Marvel to make. I can at least give GotG the benefit of the doubt until i actually see it, and I'll probably end up doing so with this film too, but this guy's powers just seem

I can at least give GotG the benefit of the doubt until i actually see it, and I'll probably end up doing so with this film too, but this guy's powers just seem so...odd and not very cool. I understand 1: the need to add to the roster of the Avengers, 2: this universe isn't supposed to be fully grounded in reality (example, signs pointing to a certain beloved character coming back from the dead. then again, obviously most of the current Avengers aren't very realistic either, so kind of a moot point) But there's something about "Ant-Man" that just doesn't excite me at all. Maybe I'm not explaining myself enough and taking too long to say something extremely simple, but this is one Marvel hero that I'm just not looking forward to very much.

I know what you mean and how you feel. However once I saw what Ant-Man can really do and how is character is portrayed I became a lot more interested.

This is a strange move for Marvel. ..especially after listening to the new Feige interview. "Everyone expected Avengers 2 to be the Phase 2 finale movie, but we wanted to do something outside the box and unexpected, so we're making Ant-Man our Phase 2 finale film. Avengers 2 will be released on May 1st, 2015, and Ant-Man comes later that year on November 6th, 2015." -Kevin Feige (President of Marvel).

Sean Harris would make an excellent Hank Pym. he's old enough to be a biochemist and security center expert. Ant-Man shouldn't be too young. I like Sean's beady little eyes.

John Krasinski

Remember when there was all that talk about him possibly set for the role of Captain America??? Why not try him out for Ant-Man?

He'd be my top choice for Scott Lang. But then comes the million thumbs down for "Nooooooooooo it has to Pym!!!!!!" Look, Edgar Wright has said it before ... it's gonna be both Pym & Lang.
